    Hey, I'm looking for a shooting partner or someone I can meet up at the range and shoot with. I really don't have anyone to go with at this point and wouldn't mind having someone to go with as well as train with.

    Anyone?

    I am game. Which range? By "train," do you just mean to punch holes into paper (that would be me), or do you have a specific program in mind? By "shoot," do you mean to limit it to short arms, or do you want to include long arms (I guess that this would be range dependent)? Do you have a time/date in mind? I have one of these high-tech flex schedules that gives me some Fridays off, which would be preferable, as my wife thinks that my weekends are hers to plan for.

    Frederick is a bit of a drive, but Rippon is convenient. Where is 340 defense?That is a new one to me. Are there signs to it? I could meet you at the post office or some other place. Friday and Saturdayare supposed to be clear, though cold; any time in the early afternoon? I can bring coffee. But when my hands freeze (I have had frostbite), it's a day.

    That's OK; I was going to say, as I have no home computer, just at work, that if I did not hear from you today, that I would notsee any new messages until the next Monday.

    Right on 340, I see. I will go look for them, this weekend. Yeah; they ARE pricy. I am retired mil; I guess that that just lets me in during the week. I assume that you are a member and that members can bring guests.

    Is the training/classes any good?

    Give a holler when ready.

    I shoot at the IWLA range outside of Leesburg on Route 15-S. It might be a 30-40 minute drive for you, but be happy to meet you there sometime. Weekends are crowded, though.

    I visited it on Monday: they have great plans for how it is going to be (note tense). I talked with Josh, IIRC, and a buddy of his. They could answer questions about facilties but not about prices, much. Outdoor shooting is low on my winter list of priorities, but I will go back to talk with the owner (Mark?), later, in preparation for the spring and summer to come.
